Hangout At South’s Most Popular Music Festivals
Music festivals are among the most highly anticipated events in the South. Although there are festivals in nearly every state in the South, people travel for hours to attend certain events.
One that has gained a following in recent years is the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama on the sandy beach. Many renowned pop artists perform annually.
Probably the most well-known music festival in the South is Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival at Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee. Unique because of its outdoor camping experience, most Bonnaroo attendees spend the weekend camping on a 650-acre farm in RVs or tents. They leave the comfort of hotel rooms and apartments behind, share communal showers and sleep under the stars.
Bonnaroo features many music genres. You’ll hear everything from alternative rock, indie musicians and pop artists.
Glen Rollins, who has attended Bonnaroo for a decade, said the event is special “because it is a wholesome, fun experience in which people camp out with friends and family and listen to amazing music outdoors.”
In recent years, Rollins has purchased VIP tickets, granting him access to exclusive music viewing areas and a VIP campground.
